One thing that has always been spinning my mind, almost ever since I've been using Mail, in a bit more mature way, was "Do I need inbox-zero?".. up to now, I've been living successfully, every now and day marking all e-mails as read, with the exception of those that needs some action. My inbox rarely ever comes up to 100 unread E-mails, although including newsletters I do like, but never read..
However! I was kind of wondering, and honestly I cannot explain myself in words about my thoughts around this subject, would 'inbox zero' add something to my live? The only difference simply is a white screen versus a full screen of mails, but marked read. The counter shows '0' either way.
And we're not even speaking about deleting versus archiving, which from my aspect, could be a whole new topic..
I'm satisfied by this at this current point, but I do live by the words 'If you are in doubt about something, the current situation is not satisfying'. Therefor, I'm unsure if this situation actually fits.
One thing that extends this matter is that I'm using both a desktop as mobile client that is quite focussed on achieving inbox zero, by the features it provides.. Though, I don't use them (yet), because I'm not pursuing inbox zero..
Looking forward to your thoughts!
